Wild turkeys by the road
and wild peacocks too
but the peacocks are so wary
it’s hard to get a view.

The turkeys have far fewer qualms.
I really don’t know why;
there’s not a lot of diff’rence
between peacock or turkey pie.

I stood beside the busy road
as they fled across the grass
and though I had the zoom on full
my photos are a farce.

They had their tails hidden.
I couldn’t find them with the lens
and I’m beginning to suspect
that they were all pea-hens…

…or something like that!
